Turn the bag through so that the right side is showing, you can press it to give nice crisp edges or you can be a lazy bones like me and just go straight to filling it with lavender.
|filling the lavender sachet|
I found the least messy way to fill it was to stand it in the bag containing the lavender and use a piece of rolled paper as a makeshift funnel, then just pile it in there. You want the sachet to be quite well filled so I would suggest over filling and tipping out the excess.
|tuck the ends in|
When you find the right level fold the ends of the sachet inside to give you a nice neat edge and sew along.
The red stitches of the visible hem contrast nicely against the white of the fabric
|3 lavender sachets|
All three sachets are tied together by the use of the base fabrics as contrast on the other two.
This would have been a nice quick make if done on the machine but I opted to hand sew and underestimated how long that would take me, luckily I wasn't under any time pressure.
These are ideal as birthday or Christmas presents, it is never too early to make a start!
Just a reminder that the Me Made May challenge starts on Sunday, I hope all who take part have fun with it, please feel free to leave a link on here to your blog or put up your instagram name so that we can follow you. I haven't decided how I am going to document my little effort, but as my pledge is only once a week it won't take up too much time!
For those in the UK enjoy your bank holiday weekend and I hope you get to see some sunshine
